All events are via RSVP during Covid – current students please check your emails, the whatsapp group or the Covid page on this site for this week’s form.
We’re all hoping UAlbany can stay within the 100 case count to reset on the Shabbat before Yom Kippur, so we can offer Yom Kippur services and Sukkot holiday meals for students in-person.
see our VIRTUAL page for links to join Zoom’s and Whatsapp’s, our daily FB Live, and other ways to connect virtually. Since our closing in March for Covid-Coronavirus we’ve transitioned to a lot of online programming for both students and alumni. As well as Shabbat-To-Go almost all throughout.
See our COVID page for continuously (keep checking back as we update it!) updated information on what services and programs we may (or may not) be able to offer during this unusual semester, and what conditions and specifics would be involved, including RSVP system, outdoor seating, limited group sizes, distancing, masks etc. The goal is to provide as much as we possibly can under these circumstances, in a responsible and safe manner, following the guidelines and recommendations. Thanks to all who have contributed to help purchase equipment and supplies to enable this current temporary transition. And thanks to those alumni, parents, friends and professionals who have helped us develop protocols and guidelines based on local and national and university health policies.
Shavuah Tov update:
Hope all are well! Due to the current situation at UAlbany, we’re suspending Sat night’s midnight Selichot prayers and Sunday’s Minyan Brunch and will assess the situation going forward after that. We’d really like to be open for Rosh Hashanah, and will do something for sure in some way but will keep all involved students posted as to full details. Stay tuned and keep safe! Let’s all do the responsible thing for ourselves and others!
SIGNUP FORM for keep-in-touch at Shabbos House.… we send out a weekly email with event updates for that week. If you don’t get our emails (alumni: a couple times a month, student updates weekly) please let us know so we can add you to the email list. Stay in touch, keep in the loop!
More updates soon,
Love, Mendel & Raizy
